Reach in your makeup bag. Now try and find your favorite lip gloss with your eyes closed.

Can you do it or do you find yourself running into other makeup, possibly even things you haven't used in months or - eek! - years? If so, it's time to reorganize your beauty product collection.

Don't worry, it won't take long and this article won't turn you into some super-organized, Type-A nitwit. We've just got some simple tips to take your beauty projects from disorganized and questionable to clean and ready for anything!

First, toss out anything older than six months. This is the time span most makeup professionals suggest discontinuing use of any eye makeup products.

The point of the six-month rule is to keep you from getting an eye infection, but it's a good rule of thumb for all your beauty products.

Not sure how long to keep something? Check your products. Many now feature a small trash can icon with a number. That number tells you how many months to hang onto a product. Also, if you haven't used the item in so long you can't remember the last time it saw daylight, save yourself some space in that bag and toss it!

Next, clean up your brushes. Makeup brushes are also notorious for hanging onto skin infections and dead skin cells. Without proper cleaning, this can lead to breakouts.

Before you use them on another beauty product, clean them up with warm water and a mild soap. Leave them on your bathroom counter to dry overnight. If you don't have time to do them by hand, give them a spin in the dishwasher.

Once they're all clean, store them together in a small pouch inside your makeup bag or even stand them up in a small glass on your counter or dresser.

Finally, designate one area for each type of beauty product. In other words, put eye makeup with other eye products and lip gloss and lipsticks together.

You can stash everything in small bundles tied together with a hair tie inside your bag or in one place in your makeup prep area. That way, when you're doing your makeup, you'll only have to look one place for each type of item as you go about your routine.

Dust off or clean each item with a cotton pad or cotton swab and you're good to go!
